Much Love - Magellan 3

Won’t You Be My Valentine?

Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!

Quote Of The Week

A cat will do what it wants when it wants,
And there’s not a thing you can do about it.

Crafting With Magellan

Last week, I jumped up on Mom’s desk and
Discovered she was cutting out lots of hand-stamped hearts
To make a special Valentine’s Day Card!

I must confess – I was totally fascinated by these hearts.
Were they for me?
What game would we play with them?
Since Mom seemed somewhat protective of them,
I kept my eye on them to make sure they stayed safe!

Much Love - Magellan 2

Take time to smell the flowers – just don’t eat them!

I love hanging out with Mom when she crafts.
There are so many exciting things to play with!
Crafting is very relaxing for us cats.
You can even take time out to smell the flowers!

Of course, I’ve discovered that it is considered very bad form
To actually nibble on them – especially if your human is watching!
Just saying…
I, of course, would never do such a naughty thing!

Much Love - Magellan 4

One of my favorite kitty games is Pounce! I’m VERY good at it!

I’ve learned lots of lessons about the etiquette of crafting.
For instance, there are lots of exciting cat toys like ribbon and buttons
That will make you want to pounce across the desk and
Engage in a wild game of hunt and chase right then and there –
Even if it sends all of Mom’s supplies flying across the room!

Of course, your human will not particularly appreciate
Your exuberance in those moments.
Tread softly to avoid being kicked out of the craft room!

Much Love - Magellan 1

Of course, I can be a master of stealth and restraint when I have to be…

My best advice?
Have fun but be stealthy!
Strategize and craft wisely!
Notice how I use my entire body and paws to
Hunt my favorite crafty items and claim them for my own…

    It is so sweet that Magellan was trying to sniff the flower… maybe deciding if it’s good to eat!! Thanks for hosting WW.

    Our adopted cat likes a good game of pounce as well, although for a cat he is rather clumsy.

  15. That cat is so cool. Love him. Thanks for sharing.

  16. Ralph says:

    Our family feline friends are wonderful – they keep that age of discovery their entire life, ready to pounce and play along with our crafty activities. We see our kitties as being amused with this and that, and that is why we keep them in our hearts not just around Valentine’s Day…but always!

  17. Irwin says:

    So very cute! I love it 🙂

  18. Lilly's Mom says:

    Magellan is so adorable in those pictures! Looks like he likes this project he’s working on 🙂

  19. Emilie says:

    LOL Kitties are so helpful. I’ll be breaking out the sewing materials in the next couple of days, and expect similar treatment from our felines.

    Great pics, and thanks for hosting!

  20. A lovely post. Oh, Magellan, you are one crafty cat! 😀 A beautiful video about the big cats.

    Oh what a wonderful video & thanks so much for sharing it with us. I personally will stick with Magellan’s size though & just love the bigger ones from afar… very far!!! Thank you for the linky and have a wonderful blessed day dear friend. Nice to see you have a playful buddy to hang out with while you’re crafting! 🙂

  29. It must be such fun for Magellan to play with cutouts! That card looks fantastic!

    I would have some doubts about “safety” !

  31. I consider cat bite marks art! You can come help me with my crafting any time Magellan.

  32. Diane says:

    Stopping by from WOYWW. Love the blog post today. Even though I find myself often frustrated with my feline like when they tip of the glitter bottle, walk across wet paint or try to drink our of the paint water, I can’t imagine life without them!
    Please stop by today as could use your advice. My post will explain it all. Diane #39

  33. MyDogLikes says:

    hmmm….tell me more about your successful crafting in the same house as cats! Mom always locks her self in a room to “save the frustration”! Silly kitties!

    Magellan’s heart belongs to you!

  38. Kitties Blue says:

    With eight helpers available at all times, our mom doesn’t do too much crafting anymore. You have such a cute helper, it definitely would be hard to ban him from participating. Thanks for another great video. Happy Valentine’s Day. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  39. Peggy Frezon says:

  42. Nan G says:

    Oh yes T comes in and wants to craft. Then gets tired and goes into her new cubby to recoup. Her fave crafty exercise is sunbathing. Laying just so the plates cant come out through the big shot. Quite the furry characters aren’t they?! High paws from T to Magellan. Hugs and Happy WOYWW! Nan G #62
